Buying a clamp meter

10 posts in this topic

I am buying a clamp meter for christmas and would like to order it tomorrow sometime so it gets here by Christmas. I am willing to spend up to $350 on one and am mainly looking at Fluke products.

This is my first clamp meter and I want to buy good quality the first time around...

I don't know much at all about these types of tools, but from what my research has conducted is that this would be a pretty good model to go with.

I also see in videos that people use a digital multi meter to obtain the AC voltage also. Do I need a special multimeter for this? Or would any decent multimeter do the trick?

Thanks fellas...

I like Fluke, I just dont like buying a name, Klein, Milwaukee, Greenlee, Ideal... All make great clamps for less and have the same rating and quality

How do the fluke 335, and 336 compare to the 337? I too am looking for a nice accurate clamp that has true rms function. Let me know what you guys think!
